As cleanup efforts continue in the wake of Friday's devastating tornadoes, Ottawa-Gatineau residents are coming to grips with the fact their lives have been irrevocably altered by the storm.
Environment Canada has confirmed that a pair of twisters formed in the region Friday.
One touched down in the rural west Ottawa community of Dunrobin, before tracking east across the Ottawa River and causing serious damage to Gatineau's Mont-Bleu neighbourhood.
A second tornado tore through a handful of neighbourhoods in Nepean near the intersection of West Hunt Club and Greenbank roads.
Both tornadoes toppled hydro poles, sent tree branches spiralling through the air and damaged hundreds of homes and businesses.
Here are just a few of the people affected by Friday's storm.
